Hello community,

My last car just got totaled and I was looking into getting a new car. I have 25,000 to spend. Any one got any recommendations?
I don't really have any preferences just it has to be a four door. Sedan or suv and keep it import(or euro).

I was looking at
Lexus IS
Acura TL
Infinity g35
3 Series(maybe)

my parents are really pushing me to get that new honda pilot...but i just came from a nissan xterra.

I own an IS250 awd, and I gotta say its a nice car but very cramped, not sure how big you are but its very small inside. I was talking cars the other day witha good friend, a very underrated car came to me, the volkswagen phaeton. An affordable hand built luxury car, i believe its on the same chassis as the bentley.You won't find a car in that class with more to offer for the price.
I emphasize FOR THE PRICE. The maintenance on them is not that crazy, although i believe the shocks on this car are very pricey.

For an IS350, you are going to need to find one with 40k miles or so for 25k. Dont go with a 3 series..

IS>TL>3 Series>g35

My fam owns an is350, and the drive is very smooth

cop a 745 for like 14 from a repo dealer

or get a grand marquis lift it up and mount some 6s on that garden tool

or a cadillac deville on 22s

or a jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas on 22s

etc.

just check out the free mags at the grocery store every time you pass through. thats what I do, and thats how I got my boy his hook up for a Rolls. A 1983Silver Spirit with 50k OG miles for 10 grand! That joint hit the paint and wheel shop, and is lookin MEAN for like 15ish. I would do it, except my parentswould refuse to contribute a dime to such coolness

you can find quite a few C6's in texas for a little under 30k.....i plan to get one this year, but i'm going to try to find an owner wholives in the midwest or northeast. I noticed because of the weather, vette's from that region have less miles because they can't drive them yearround..

25K can buy him a clean e46 M3, and I would love to have that stock.

But OP looks like he's looking for an automatic sedan... get a used Benz...
I'd have to put wheels on it asap.
